Fully Refurbished Vintage Challenge Hurricane Road Bike. Here are the main specs. Medium Sized 62cm Steel Frame & Forks. NEW 27 x 1 1/4 Alloy Rims. Bolt on rear & QR Front.Built onto 36 spoke Alloy Hubs. NEW Schwalbe 27 Tan Wall Tyres. 7 Speed SACHS 12-18 Tooth LY-99 Freewheel.
Shimano Derailleur gears with matching Downtube Shifters. NEW Bar Tape, NEW Gear & Brake cables (Inner & Outer). This bike came to me as a bit of a basket case.
It had been looked after beforehand but time had not been kind to the bike. The chromed steel rims had rotted thru & all the consummable items had perished. Rust had also started to get under the badly faded paint. So I decided on a full bare metal re-spray.
I chose a nice Blue colour which really sets of the bike very well. The bike is more or less original except for the wheels & has retained all of its original components which responded well to being cleaned up. I built a new set of wheels. The front hub is an SR branded QR alloy & the rear is an unbranded Bolt on alloy. They look fantastic on the bike & wearing the good quality Schwalbe tyres they look fantastic on the bike.
I fully stripped the bike serviced & cleaned up all of the individual components. All the cables, both inner & outer are new as are the brake pads. The Bar tape is also new.
All the greasy bits are greased & all the oily bits oiled & while it might need a bit of fettling to get it "just so" the bike is ready to go & should offer its new owner a safe & comfortable ride. Overall this is a nice bike & as i mentioned it wears its age well.It is a 62cm, medium/large sized frame so may suit smaller riders as well as those around 6 foot. This is collection only from Royston Hertfordshire. We are around 20 mins from the A1 (Stevenage) and right on the Cambridge border about 20 mins drive from central Cambridge. Again drop me a line if this would be useful.
